We've been told over and over again by experienced customers that the HF2 is the finest holster they own. Comments we get are beyond enthusiastic.
The HF2 rides close and secure like a pancake and stays open for easy re-holstering. The HF2 rides on your belt at a 13 degree forward cant angle.
Customers often comment on how easy it is to break in, yet the HF2 has great retention.
The visible overflap provides the front belt slot to bring the holster in close and keep it secure. The cant angle is perfect for most people and the holster comes ready to use with very little break in.
The HF2 is everyone's favorite belt holster, including a number of Texas Rangers.
HF1 vs. HF2:
The HF1 is made to the length of a specific pistol. It's still open at the bottom, but the holster tapers down to the opening and will not allow the muzzle through.
The HF2 is made for several lengths of the same pistol (usually 1911-style or 9mm/40 caliber Glocks). It is open and flared at the bottom so the front sight doesn't catch when you draw the pistol.
Some customers just like the look of the HF2 with the slide sticking out the bottom even though they do not have several lengths of the same pistol.
Both ride at the same height and cant angle.
The HF1 cannot be made for attached lights or for Red Dot (RMR) optical sights. We make the leather Texas Short Stroke for RMR's and we make the Deep Carry DC-3 for Lights and RMR's.
We cannot make the HF1 or HF2 for some small 9mm and .380 caliber pistols because of their small size such as the Sig P238, P938, Kahr PM9/40/45 and other similar pistols. We recommend the Pancake holster for those pistols.** We cannot scale down that far. Ask if you're uncertain. *Choose a Pancake Holster.
